Weekday trip to Chaing Khan”

We read about Chiang Khan walking street and read multiple reviews pros and cons. We settle on a place with Mekong river view close to walking street that has old Chiang Khan charm. Tao Kae Lao delivered. It is a cross between a hotel and airbnb. The owner greeted us like a friend and gave us as much or as little info as we needed. The room is spotless. The place is charming. Amenities on par with 2.5 star hotel. 150m west of Wat Sri Chiang Khan so you can get good night sleep before 11pm. Tao Kae Lao won't suit everyone but should suit most 30-50yo couples.

Best place to getaway.”

Staff, location, ambience

Experienced the warmest welcome ever! I feel just like home but with a much better surrounding, quiet yet lively. The owner is super nice and helpful. The shared bathroom and toilet could cause some hesitation but three-day vacation at this place had confirmed that I made the right decision staying here. The cleanliness of bathrooms and toilets is beyond expectation. A short distance to the walking street and far enough to have peaceful and relaxing moment when I needed it. I'd stayed in upstairs riverview room and it was divine waking up to the scene of sunrise over the river (and honestly I'm not a morning person but couldn't resist the breathtaking view). Even it was rainy season when I was there, I still very much enjoyed my visit. There are bikes for rental provided if you need as well. Totally recommend this place if anyone ever wish to come to Chiangkarn. My next stay would definitely be with Tao Kae Lao again if vacant. :)

Happy guest house”

Service mind

it was my first time with tao kae lao so, i expected nothing only cleaned room. but when i got there i totally love the atmosphere of the hotel, it's small but chic for me. i booked the city view room but they upgraded and i moved to the garage room (this one is more expensive than the old one). my room was clean, cleaned bathroom, many bottles of water, and the most important thing the owner of this place they are really nice that made me feel like my own home. i'm impressed if i have a chance to visit this province i will never miss to stay this hotel again for sure... ;)

Highly recommend Tao Kae Lao. Rooms are simple but thoughtfully and tastefully decorated and have everything you need. Lovely view of the river. The shared bathroom were not an issue at all. Was handy being next door to them though (I stayed downstairs). Owners were very welcoming and helped me arranged trips and transport etc.

I would definitely return to Tao Kae Lao”

Both exterior and interior designs are very unique, it combines well with Chiang Khan identity. The room ia quite spacious as well as the bath room. The smell is sooo clean and it is indeed clean. I even asked the owner of what kind of breching liquid they're using. Everything in the room are well equipped with simplicity and necessity. What they offer are so generous, free bike for in-house guest, unlimited high-quality coffee, unlimited noodle cups, unlimited snacks and well-prepared complimentary breakfast. All aforementioned are FREE of charge. They also charge the minimal amount for soft drinks and liquors. The price we paid is exactly the same with the price you will be paying at 7-Eleven. Comparing what we paid and what we got, I will definitely revisit this guest house. The two owners are very helpful and friendly. They even offered a free bike, despite the fact that I had already checked out. The only down side of this place is their blanket is too small.

Great inexpensive little place”

Helpful staff, great location and view, centrally located

This is a great little place. It is cheap to stay here, but the room was comfortable and clean. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. There was free water for the room, a great view of the Mekong, and right on a path that follows the river. There are plenty of restaurants around and it is in a great location, while still being quiet, and just outside the main part of town. There are a variety of room types. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. The only downside, is that no room has it's own bathroom, but if you are able to deal with that, it is a great place to stay.

Highly recommended! Perfect location for those who enjoy the quiet place in an old town Chiang Khan.”

The location is the best which you can enjoy the Kekong river view from the room terrace. It is not too far from Chiang Khan night market and local morning morning which you can easily find yummy local food for breakfast for a cheap price. Since it is not in the middle of business street so, you can find a quiet moment here at the guest house. For active travelers, you can enjoy morning jogging, bicycling along the river to Phu Thok for a sunrise.

Artsy, yet not with any artistic yoke”

View of the river, clean room with nice smell and friendly staff

It was much better than expected. It was initially hard to find the location but once that is sorted, i was happy with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The hotel is also a shop and has many interesting items. The room is at the back of the shop with a wonderful view of the Mekong. What i loved is the nice smell in the room that shows that the location is washed and cleaned nicely. The whole place is made out of wood and there is aircon if it became more humid and hot. And lastly, i had super nice dinner (recommendation of the hotel staff) and was fetch back in the back of the bike to the bus station. THe location is away from the main areas so there is more privacy.

Good cozy B&B hotel with right location and basic amenities”

The location is just next to the entrance of the Walking Street which offers you both convenient access and privacy at the same time. On the balcony you can enjoy a river view with a gated access to the riverside pathway. The amenities are what you can expect from this kind of B&B. No television but a shared refrigerator is provided. Two bicycles are available free of charge but subjected to availability. You can ride them along the bike lane, which is safe, around the neighborhood or further to Kang Khud Koo (4 miles/6.5 km). Recommendation 1. The Walking Street starts at 5pm on a daily basis, offering local eateries along with souvenirs at a budget price. 2. Morning alms (food offering for monks) starts around 6.00am when people (99% tourists) sit on the street to pay respect and offer foods to Buddhist monks.
